So what inspired the creation of Shop for a Cause? According to Lauren Young, Chief Administrative Officer, Brookfield Properties and Co-Chair, Brookfield Women’s Network, “We think it is essential for Brookfield to be an active and supportive part of the communities in which we invest, both by creating inviting places that bring people together and by supporting local initiatives and organizations that are making a positive impact. Shop for a Cause touches on both elements. The response to the one-day event last year was tremendous, and we raised more than $10,000. This year, we’ve extended the program to a full-week and more than doubled the number of retailers participating to 37, and we hope to raise more money for an incredible cause – the Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care at NYU Langone’s new Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, which opens later this month.”
